    is the wire on the bottom of the incubator covered with something? If so I would lay the egg on it's side on the floor. or put the top of the egg carton in and lay the egg on it's side in it.

    I had the same problem. You can help it out if you want too. However, do it gently and leave the shell attached to his butt. Dont pull it off. You will see what looks like a red string, dont pull it off. Just leave it attached to him and lay him and the shell down gently in the bator and it will break when it dries. [​IMG]
